It’s not every day you get to be featured on Mad Money.
Global Payments CEO Jeff Sloan recently appeared on CNBC’s Mad Money to discuss the company’s active growth and success in the financial technology industry. Global’s ability to maintain such accelerated growth has shattered industry expectations and has piqued Cramer’s interest in the company.
Sloan sat down with Mad Money host Jim Cramer and discussed the Heartland parent company’s payment solutions and market verticals, including restaurants, college campuses and more. The two also talked about how the company’s solutions help merchants all over the world run their businesses more efficiently.
A quarter of the company’s business happens in Europe and Asia (mostly Romania, Vienna, the Philippines and the Czech Republic), and Global’s international business dealings have contributed to the overall growth of the company and have catapulted Global Payments into the spotlight.
Here are just a few of our favorite quotes from the interview:
- [Sloan to Cramer]: “The most important thing, Jim, is the merchant, not Global Payments.”
- “Global Payments is one of the consistent great companies that, right now, is not being rewarded, but will over time and that’s what matters.” –Jim Cramer
- “Not only did [Global Payments] beat Wall Street’s sales and earnings estimates, Global also raised its full-year forecast for both the top and bottom lines. Their business accelerated nicely with double digit organic growth.” –Jim Cramer
- “We focus on how distinctive our technologies are and how distinctive our distribution is, coupled with emerging markets.” –Jeff Sloan
Congratulations, Global Payments! We celebrate all you do for merchants in the U.S. and across the globe.
